 Acrostic Poem “SPRING”

You will be creating a slide show/poem using the word Spring

Title slide (be original), then a slide for each letter.  The letter will be large,  then two very interesting descriptive sentences, the first sentence will begin with that letter.  Then go out and either take a photograph that represents that letter, or draw a picture that represents  that slide.  You cannot get pictures from the internet this is all original. So 7 slides total

  Don’t race through this.  Write very e sentences.  I expect you to use precise verbs and nouns.  Use interesting vocabulary. Do not repeat the same words over and over through your slides.  While it is only 2 sentences, this is something you will want to revise multiple times to use better vocabulary, more interesting sentences, and more vivid description. 

We will be sharing these using Zoom after 4/20
